Things were looking good for Jeff. He was ready to rule the school his senior year as the starting running back on the football team. That is, until Scooter came to town. From the moment the tiny kid stepped onto the field, Jeff’s life has been turned upside down. First Jeff loses his starting spot, and then even the chance at a football scholarship. Tensions rise as Jeff tries to take back what is rightfully his—his friends, his school, his team—from the quiet kid who became a walk-on star. But is Scooter really out to ruin Jeff’s life, or could it all be a huge misunderstanding?
